Fakes, Forgeries & Experts Journal (FFE), since 1998 appreciated tool for the fight against and to inform about forgeries, is entering an exciting chapter with a new editor.
Vincent Schouberechts will take on the challenge of developing FFE into new accomplishments and he is already in progress with the work of the issue #19.
Mr. Schouberechts is a very active collector, especially of philatelic literature and he was one of the organizers of the Literature Exhibition at MonacoPhil 2013. He is also a member of AEP, FRPSL, AIJP and Belgian Academy administrator.
The first issue of FFE was published by Paolo Vollmeier in 1998 and since then over four hundred articles have been written by more than 200 authors. Paolo Vollmeier was succeeded by the Honorary FIP President Knud Mohr, who edited 10 issues and later on by Jonas Hällström. The Journal is one of the most important publications concerning knowledge of fakes and forgeries in the philatelic world. The volumes contain a broad spectrum of articles covering a wide field of philatelic mischief, but also expert insight on interesting and relevant subjects. It has almost become a necessity in the education of jurors.
FFE is, since the start, published in close cooperation with A.I.E.P. who is sending the Journal to all their members.
